Motivational Speaker: Kelly Swanson Quotes

I came across this great motivational speaker, Kelly Swanson and wanted to share some of her quotes.  Very inspirational!

“It’s a word that’s on my heart these days – Forgiveness. The power of it. The grace in it. The need for it. The gift it gives to those who receive it. The greater gift it gives to those who give it. I marvel that forgiveness is not a standard human emotion – for the heart fights for justice and vengeance.” Kelly Swanson

“I carried the belief into adulthood that to be successful meant to look like everyone else. But I wasn't like everyone else…It turns out that being different isn't such a bad thing. In fact, it's a great thing. In fact, it's everything. I have learned that it's not blending in that makes you a success, but standing out among the crowd.” Kelly Swanson

“Know that there will be things that go wrong that are beyond your control. Accept that, and go into it from the beginning knowing what's really important. Lower your expectations. I'm not saying to change your plans, just your reaction when things don't go the way you planned.” Kelly Swanson

“You can live your life stiff and proper, obsessed with appearances, measuring the value in others by the degree of china or thread count in a pillow, measuring every step as if all the world were watching and you so desperately don't want to let them see you fall. Or you can live your life desperately happy despite your circumstances - looking for every opportunity to throw out your arms and dance.” Kelly Swanson

“Have you chosen your teammates wisely? Are you surrounded by people who encourage you to be good enough - or are you surrounded by people who encourage you to break a new record? Or, bless your heart, are you just now realizing that you're the only one in the race? The choice is yours. The race has already started. They won't stop and pull you in. You've got to jump in and start running.” Kelly Swanson

“Juggles never stopped being a clown. Day in and day out. It stayed his dream and remained his passion. Even when his hair fell out and he was too weak to honk his nose - even from his bed, when what little fans that were left had to come to him. It was March of 1998 when Juggles died, wearing a big red nose and a contented smile. He never made more than $50 a job.
How do you measure success?
